Heat Dome of Summer


I do not have to tell anyone but the end of Summer is near even though we are under a Dome of Heat.

I have said to many, "I will take July Heat over January Cold anytime"....however the heat is not easy for MS.

I Love hot,  humid weather since I grew up with it but this year has been tough.

My biggest problem is that my brain has gone blank under the Dome of Heat!

My brain goes blank whether it's hot or not, LOL!

Oh this years heat has been horrible.One of our area lakes if 10 feet low :(

Karen said...

Seems like the heat is getting to everyone! I can't wait for Autumn, and I'm even looking forward to snow...sort of.
Hope you have a great weekend.
Cheers

I will take cold over heat, but FLORIDA cold not your kind of cold. by cold, i mean 50's and 60's. i do no like extreme cold or heat and the dome is really making us steam this year. it is so humid here it is like breathing hot water

Debbie said...

Yes!!!! (unnecessary and excessive use of the exclamation mark brought about by brain frying heat dome.)

It's like I can't even think this year. Every place I go, people say the same, too.

Walking around like a bunch of zombies we are.

I grew up in the steamy Tidewater summers of Southeast Virginia but 3 heat stress incidents over the years and the onset of COPD after 40 years of smoking have reduced my heat tolerance to zilch. However, I'm lucky in that summers here in the Blue Ridge Mountains are much milder and cold weather has never bothered me.

As I have mentioned on my own blog, I too prefer summer heat to winter cold, but this year has really tested my preference. Well, not really. I still don't want to shovel snow anymore or skid on ice patches or get frosbite. Thank goodness for AC is all I can say.

last winter did a munber on me physically and emotionally...I just couldn't wait for the signs of spring. I guess its a case of be carefully what you wish for in my case! LOL Its finally cooling down here and we are enjoying it . I hope it cools down where you are soon!
Blessings, Joanne

Kerri said...

Ug. Sorry....I'd have to take the cold. The heat and humidity drain every ounce of energy I have. I've been pretty much homebound for the month of July because of it! Yuck!

Ginny said...

You have air conditioning? I hope so!! Yes, I believe we have had record breaking temps this summer. But school starts next week, so it's almost fall and the worst is over!

Stephanie M. Page said...

ugh! It has been hoootttt and huuuummiiidd in MN so I can't imagine what it is like other places!

Becky Jane said...

Come and cool off at my house!

sprinkles said...

I don't have MS but my brain goes blank under the dome of heat too! lol

I'm so sad that summer is over. I didn't even really get to enjoy it.

I followed you home. Thanks for visiting. I turn into a troll in summer and only come out (reluctantly) at night. Winter is a happy time for me, unfortunately now coming to an end.

Chatty Crone said...

I have to agree with you 100% - it is like there is just not any relief in site and we still have couple of months.

My brain goes numb without the dome of heat. I prefer heat to cold. I guess that is why I live in the sub-tropics.

Have Myelin? said...

Come visit me, it's cool in Colorado it seems all year...

Betsy from Tennessee said...

I will take January's COLD over July and August HEAT anyday... I hate this kind of heat.......I'm just not a summer person anymore... Oh Well---Fall should be here sometime!
Hugs,
Betsy

Now Patti and I may as well be children of the North Wind. Summer is just another MS unfriendly obstacle. However blessed Fall and Winter lay only a blink of a sweaty eye ahead.

Caregivingly Yours, Patrick

It is the same for me. I love hot humid, it is what I grew up with...but my neurons do NOT! It is kind of confusing...on the one hand below 82 and it seems chilly on my skin...but I know that 78 would be better for my MS...

My husband calls me Goldie Locks because the temp has to be just right!!!

Mildred said...

I cannot stand the cold but it has been a horribly hot/humid summer. Autumn sounds pretty good to me!!!

Mariel said...

I have always said the same thing! I am a summer girl through and through, but I must admit this summer has been HOT! Lest I get an "I told you so" from winter-lovers, I will quickly say I DO like the heat...but I prefer to be by a pool or seaside in the midst of it!! Praying you stay cool and comfortable! :)

S. Etole said...

It has cooled off quite a bit here just since yesterday ... hope you will soon have some relief from the heat.

Aries said...

It is cooling, cloudy and rainy sometime for the past 1 moth here in Kuala Lumpur. Hope you have a great week ahead

My Journey With Candida said...

I too love the the heat, but you are right .. it has been a really hot, humid summer. We will be wishing for this when old man winter roars.

Kim... it has been so long since I came over to say Hello.

Dawn said...

It seems so strange when all my blogging friends say it has been a hot summer. I think this is going down as one of the wettest and coldest for us in an incredibly long time. SO wish we could trade a bit:))

Where have I been? Sorry I haven't been here in a while. I know all about the heat! My hubby wants to move up north cause of his MS. I can't do snow and ice though. Fall will be here soon!!

God bless!
